You Gotta Give Yourself The Love You Want

I wake up
I have to watch
something funny
I have to talk to God
I’m panicking
I’m alone
And I ain’t got a job.
Oh, that mind of mine
I have to sit down and chat.
There ain’t nothing
to be panicking about, love.
If I tell you everything
will be okay
You’re doing just fine
Will that calm you down?
‘Cause you are.
You’re doing just fine.
I know you don’t want
to hear that
You’re tired of waiting
Oh, I know you’re tired of waiting
But you’re doing just fine.

See, I learned
You gotta talk to yourself like
you want others
to talk to you
You gotta give
yourself the love
you want
I’m calm, now
How about that
I’m calm
